Musical step into spring
DOMINIC College will be awash with the sound of horns this Friday when the Derwent Valley Concert band blows into Glenorchy for its annual Spring School.
The band is conducting a three-day workshop to educate the next wave of would-be woodwind, brass and percussion musicians.
Derwent Valley Concert Band lead saxophone player and co-ordinator Jess Taylor said the spring school aimed to “provide good-quality tuition in a fun and exciting way.”
“The Derwent Valley Concert Band features the best of the best brass band musicians statewide,” she said.
Derwent Valley Concert Band consists of more than 80 members across three different grades — development, intermediate and senior.
Accomplished conductors Nathaniel Griffiths and Simon Reade will be on hand to help keep the participants in tune.
To conclude the workshop on a high note, there will be special concert by the DVCB.
The fourth annual Spring School will be held from Friday to Sunday at a cost of $50 per person, which covers all meals and tuition.

The Derwent Valley Concert Band will celebrate its 25th anniversary next Saturday with a gala concert at The Friends’ School in Hobart.
